Get ready to embark on an exciting journey into the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Together, we will explore Chat GPT and unpack its key functions, opportunities, and limitations for our sector. We'll share tips and showcase examples of how to use Chat GPT in project design and gender-transformative health programming. Practical hands-on learning (through individual and small group activities) will boost your skills and confidence.

Session 2: February 14 - 11:00 am to 12:30 pm EST

Together we will explore the power of using Chat GPT in qualitative data analysis, with a specific focus on gender-transformative global health programming. Through tips, examples and learning exercises you will learn how Chat GPT can assist you in summarization, extracting text, developing codes, and generating themes from your qualitative data. While delving into these techniques, we will share the limitations and considerations to help you navigate this powerful tool effectively.

Session 3: February 21 - 11:00 am to 12:30 pm EST

Join us as we explore Chat GPT's capacity to create magic in the world of quantitative data analysis. Together we will review the software's potential for designing surveys, creating charts and tables, and coding. Insights into using the paid version (Chat GPT 4) and its data analysis module options will be shared, including advanced functions and features. You will learn valuable tips and considerations to optimize your use of Chat GPT.
